Default I Need Help Identifying this block please!!

Hi all,
I sent this block out to a friend, and didn't write down where I got it, or its name. I like it and want to repeat it, and don't know what it is called - does anyone here know? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
Nancy

I just finished a short class in which we made that block. The class was about the Farmer's Wife Sampler, and the teacher called the block "Box." Here's another site that uses that name too - http://cookiescreek.com/category/qui...ampler/page/3/

The block you have shown, is not in the FWS.
Here are two that are in FWS and are very similar.

Hate to disagree, but it is block #9 (Box) in Farmer's Wife. Here's another picture - http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/6801134696/
